Unlike most, though, I gave presentations to fortune 500 executives along with multi-million dollar clients. And I loved giving presentations.
Unfortunately, I also watched hundreds of presentations that missed the mark thanks to:
Lack of clarity
No process or structure
The “I’ll just wing it” syndrome
I noticed how few professionals put their personal strengths or stories into their work presentations. They opted to share stats and facts instead, which didn't connect or land with their audience.
Instead of watching co-workers and managers struggle, I started spending lunch breaks offering presentation coaching. Those lunch breaks turned into early morning and after work coaching sessions. There was (and still is) a widespread corporate epidemic of poor presentations being created and delivered that I could help change. I started coaching mid-career professionals full time in 2018.
